The purposes of this work are to study the $L^{2}$-stability of a Navier-Stokes type model for non-stationary flow in porous media proposed by Hsu and Cheng in 1989 and to develop a Lagrange-Galerkin scheme with the Adams-Bashforth method to solve that model numerically. The stability estimate is obtained thanks to the presence of a nonlinear drag force term in the model which corresponds to the Forchheimer term. We derive the Lagrange-Galerkin scheme by extending the idea of the method of characteristics to overcome the difficulty which comes from the non-homogeneous porosity. Numerical experiments are conducted to investigate the experimental order of convergence of the scheme. For both simple and complex designs of porosities, our numerical simulations exhibit natural flow profiles which well describe the flow in non-homogeneous porous media.
