Outdoor Advocacy. Re-Imagined.

Stimulated by an experience-driven lifestyle, people want to not only get outside and play, but do so in their backyard, as a way of life, so they can work and play where they live. Glades, trails, breweries, backcountry - you get the drift.

Backyard Concept is a forward-thinking legal, consulting, and advocacy business formed to make that happen - to mobilize the emerging and fast-growing outdoor recreation sector of the economy so your dreams of life balance can become a reality!

What’s in your backyard?

The outdoor economy is a departure from the old, industrial way of constructing communities. It’s about leveraging natural resources responsibly to create vibrant, supportive, and healthy local economies - places where people don’t just want to go, but they want to live.
— Tyler Ray, Founder & Principal
