When digging with a shovel you can damage the sole of your shoe, especially plastic boots.
This is a tip to protect your shoes. Cut a piece of a strong garden hose the size of the part of the edge of the shovel you put your foot on to push the shovel down.
Cut open the piece of garden hose with a strong blade on one side only and then slide it on the edge of the shovel. It will protect the sole of your plastic shoe from getting cut through by the edge of the shovel which are sometimes very sharp.
