It depends on what the raised beds are made of. Could use a Sledgehammer or Pickaxe to demolish walls, but I would suggest you dig it all out first, throwing weeds and saving bulbs and plants. Best wishes.
Forgot to say your idea of digging all I want to keep is a perfect solution. Again thanks!!
My pleasure - enjoy the journey.........
First you will need to take the soil out of the planters, you will need a large sieve to put the soil in and shake it over open soil bags.
this will catch all your bulbs. Once all solid is bagged up then you can post an add on freecycle stating how many bags of soil you have going free and they will reply and collect them.
this should leave you with the wood planters, look for screw heads in the wood and unscrew the screws and after all screws are out the planter should pull apart. It should now be all at ground level.
i am actually looking for the wood for these raised beds, can I ask what are do you live please, I am in Southfields in Wandsworth london
