    Why?
    If it is just decorative, make your new wall in front of the existing functional one

    The "easiest way" would depend on the person doing it's skills. I assume you want something a DIYer can do. I worked on a landscaping job once where the owner did it with steels and sleepers and it went ok. I think he took his eye off the spirit level on 1 or 2 of the steels and it set a little out of plumb but nothing to cry about. Have you priced it up? its not the cheapest.

    Well steel and sleepers is a job most people can tackle. That wall will have a foundation that will need breaking to get the steels in so not hassle free.
