DOF with strobes

Posted this in the lighting forum as well, but maybe here is better...

This is a pretty noob-like question, but what is the best way to achieve high depth of field while using studio strobes, both indoor and outdoor? Do I need ND filters? Anytime I open up a lens to f/4 or wider, I exceed my max sync speed of 1/200th, especially outdoors. Indoors I'm dialing down the output of the lights really low to the point where I get hardly any noticeable ratio between two lights. Any tips would be appreciated.

Thanks.
