A landscape dump body pretty much is a grain dump body but will usually have one or more side doors for loading materials.

You're welcome. There may be other differences, but I think that's the main one. A lot of guys just get a stake-side dump bed and put plywood or sheet metal on the panels in my area. That way you have a high sided dump with panels you can lift out if needed, but that can be a bit of a pain to do by yourself, especially if they get bent up a bit.
