The first reason that your dog keeps on digging is that you leave it in the isolated yard of your house where there is no company for him and he feels alone out there and starts digging to entertain himself and to have some job to do, your dog might find the environment near him to be barren and not playful and thus might seek for other options like digging.

If you are having a pup or an adolescent i.e the pup under three years of age, and the pup does not have any outlets for the energy then he might develop the habit to keep digging. There are some breeds of dogs that are bred to dig up the soil and thus you need to know the breed of your dog.
If your dog has seen you gardening in the dirt, then the dog may think it to  be a nice job to perform and might develop the habit of digging.
