In this paper, we find the solution for fractional Richards equation describing the water transport in unsaturated porous media using q-homotopy analysis transform method (q-HATM).The proposed technique is graceful amalgamations of Laplace transform technique with q-homotopy analysis scheme, and fractional derivative defined with Atangana-Baleanu (AB) operator. The fixed point hypothesis considered in order to demonstrate the existence and uniqueness of the obtained solution for the proposed fractional order model. In order to validate and illustrate the efficiency of the future technique, we analysed the projected model in terms of fractional order. Meanwhile, the physical behaviour of the q-HATM solutions have been captured in terms of plots for diverse fractional order and the numerical simulation is also demonstrated. The achieved results illuminate that, the future algorithm is easy to implement, highly methodical as well as effective and very accurate to analyse the behaviour of nonlinear differential equations of fractional order arisen in the connected areas of science and engineering.

Keywords: Laplace transform, Atangana-Baleanu derivative, Richards equation, - Homotopy analysis method, Fixed point theorem
