Not a particularly troublesome weed in our garden - we find it mainly in open areas such as our vegetable garden, where it forms roundish mats of tiny-leaved spreading stems that radiate out from a central stem/root. It pulls right up.
Not sure of the exact species identification - it may be C. humistrata or C. prostrata instead.

This is a weed in our garden
