Thyme lawns really work well from full sun to partial shade. You can read more about them here: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/herbs/thyme/growing-creeping-thyme.htm

If you're dealing with full shade, this article offers quite a few good recommendations: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/lawn-care/lgen/shade-tolerant-grass.htm
