Tiering an existing rock wall

I have a three-foot high rock wall in front of my yard, now barren after I hacked out the old overgrown yews that were there. Some pics:

I'm debating adding a second rock wall about six feet behind the current one, a couple feet in front of the azaleas. It seems like it would give me a nice planting area in front while adding support.

Does this seem feasible?

The attached link I'm using as inspiration, more in concept than anything else.

It's feasible but it's a lot of work. Make sure to batter back the wall and not build it too high, etc. The rock walls in your link look like they were put in by professional masons and also might have something more substantial hiding underneath the natural dry stacked stone.
