    If you try to lengthen exposure times (to blur water for example) a ND4 is a good choice.

    It depends on what you want to achieve. If you want to decrease the brightness of the sky without affecting the rest of the picture use a graduated ND filter. If you want to lengthen the shutter (for waterfall shots for example), use a plain ND filter.

    As you are probably aware graduated ND filters come in several strength. For landscape photography I found a 2 stop ND filter to be the most useful.
