Virginia Creeper at front to grow up tree

a couple of cement rounds or squares at bottom front for summer pot & ladder access to birdhouse -- cement things over top of VC roots with cardboard under for weed discouragement?

Hostas around sides and back?  Sum and Substance + 3 'unknowns' ?? 

???'s -- how much sun is front of tree going to get?  Should I be getting something that likes the heat for the direct south front?  What would that be?
