    my vote is no to permanetly installed 4 foot walls.

    I am happy with 2 foot and when I haul mulch or leaves I have inserts that I slide into place.

    4 foot could probably be made more secure to snatch and grab thefts however.

    Weld on some stake pockets and put whatever kind of walls you need.

    I have 2 footers for the summer but switch to the 4 footers in the spring and fall when I am hauling lots of debris. Its also nice if you have to load a trailer with mulch.

    Just build them in sections and store them when you dont need them. Good Luck.
