'Thrush' is a bit of a generic term for a variety of different organisms, both bacterial and fungal. There are different organisms in different places. Even if it were feasible to treat a whole property, I would not personally want to do this, as killing bacteria & fungus that cause thrush will also mean there are a bazillion other micro organisms killed in the soil, which are generally good for something or other.
Regarding 'root of the problem', as I said, the root of the problem is unhealthy, ill functioning feet, not the organisms.
