The definition of wind in this case (wound - past tense) is: "to turn completely or repeatedly about or around an object." Merriam-Webster dictionary. So, in this sentence, a garden hose is being turned (or wound) around an object (the existing wheel).
People often wind garden hoses etc. around wheels in order to keep things tidy and clean.
I hope this helps. :D
