We analyze regularization schemes for the Richards equation and a time discrete numerical approximation. The original equations can be doubly degenerate, therefore they may exhibit fast and slow diffusion. Additionally, we treat outflow conditions that model an interface separating the porous medium from a free flow domain. In both situations we provide a regularization with a non-degenerate equation and standard boundary conditions, and discuss the convergence rates of the approximations.
