I'm pretty sure this is Sagina over crassula, particularly given the location. This plant seems to be quite common in the suburban setting, it has been pretty successful in colonising the pavers out the front of my place.

Can see the fine awn on the ends of some leaves, a characteristic of Sagina apetala, but not Crassula helmsii
